Students in Mount Isa experienced the art of ballet this week, as Queensland Ballet's Education conducted a regional tour.
Queensland Ballet conducted workshops at Mount Isa schools on August 11-12, focused on inspiring regional communities and provide them with the opportunity to experience the benefits of dance.
The tour visited Mount Isa and 14 other regions in Queensland after it was suspended due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
Queensland Ballet Artistic Director Li Cunxin said it was a big step in the right direction for the company, after its entire 2020 season was postponed to 2021.
"Our community engagement tour is so important for us to connect with our local and regional communities, especially during this unprecedented time when our theatres remain closed," Mr Li said.
"Our workshops provide such wonderful opportunities for communities to come together and experience the joys of dance. Whether you enjoy the physical movement, the social aspect or the outlet of creative expression, these workshops are a fantastic way to experience our incredible artform."
